Last January, Jarrett Jack tore his ACL while playing for the Brooklyn Nets. In the eyes of many, that likely meant the end of his career, as he was 32 years old at the time and very few athletes manage to reach full strength after that injury at his age (or any age for that matter). But latest reports suggest Jack will once again be donning an NBA uniform.
Per Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical–
Jarrett Jack has agreed to a 10-day contract with the New Orleans Pelicans, league source tells @TheVertical.

This news comes less than one day after it was reported by ESPN’s Marc Stein, that Jack auditioned for the Pelicans whose backcourt is in need of a serious restructure following the trade for DeMarcus Cousins. It’s currently unknown what kind of role Jack will be expected to hold on New Orleans’ roster, but after Thurday’s loss to the Houston Rockets, it’s pretty clear the Pelicans need him.
This will Jack’s second stint with the New Orleans Pelicans.
